The above picture is of 2018's first post-run. Yes, we're back on track!
Now, my dodgy performance indicators suggest that the pile includes the 1,000th book we've sent out within the UK. In honour of this, and because it's New Year I've decided to run a competition.
The winner will receive a Diplomatist Books Membership Discount (B) - 10% off all orders during 2018. The usual cost of this membership is £20,00, but astute readers will realise that the value could run into thousands...
To enter, simply answer these two questions by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before the closing date of 16 Jan 2018. I have disabled the comments on the blog until then.
- Our spreadsheet tells us we have sold 1004 books in the UK. What is the total number including overseas sales (to the nearest 20)?
- To which non-English-speaking country have we sent most books? Clue: it isn't Denmark, which is where the above parcel is going.
However, if this proves too difficult and no-one gets both answers right, then the competition will turn into a straight draw and a random follower of the blog will be chosen (you have to be a public follower for this).
